With the development of the wireless internet, there are more and more mobile terminals. Without a mobility management protocol a mobile terminal could not communicate with other terminals when it is away from its home network. Mobile IPv6 is proposed which is host-based mobility management protocol. But it has several drawbacks, such as wireless link resource waste, load or consumption of power in mobile terminal is large. To overcome the weakness of host-based mobility management protocol, network-based mobility management protocol called Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) is standardized by the IETF NETLMM working group, and it is starting to attract considerable attentions. Although several proposals have been made for Route Optimization (RO), they still need too many communications and it may cause communication delay. In this paper we proposed a time-efficient RO in PMIPv6 by optimize the procedure of it. We use the characteristic of anycast to achieve the time efficiency. By the mathematical analysis we prove that the proposed protocol has shorter latency and supports faster mobility of the mobile terminals.
